Sofia Taborda, Head of Account & New Business Management, Future Cities Catapult - Imagine Festival

With a background in environment and innovation management and over 10 years of experience working with private and public stakeholders, I currently lead the development of a portfolio of projects in smart-city related topics at Future Cities Catapult.

Before joining Future Cities Catapult I worked in Portugal, advising the development and implementation of sustainable mobility policies.

All in all, a long-time advocate of the role of technology as an enabler of change but a firm believer that the key to today’s city challenges lies in empowering citizens to shift behaviour.
